LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Animal Foundation is hosting a ‘Clear the Shelters’ event, a nationwide effort to connect shelter animals in need with loving new families. Hundreds of shelters across the country will be holding adoption events in an effort to Clear the Shelters.
The event looks much different this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Clear the Shelters is usually a one-day event, but this year, it lasts throughout the entire month of August.
Adoption fees will be waived during the month for dogs and cats six months and older. License fees may apply. The no-cost adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, microchip and up-to-date vaccines. Adopters must complete the adoption counseling process on-site.
Adoptions are BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
